Me: I am literally having the worst day. (Drama much?) I want to cry. Grab Canes and stay in bed all afternoon.
Kate: Awwww nooo!!!!! SHAKE IT OFF!! It's pretty outside, you have a wonderful husband, and we saw Kate today (Referencing the Duchess of Cambridge. We stalk her, don't judge)!! I'll do R.I.P.P.E.D with you! Don't let this day get you down!
Me: I'm sorry to be so whiny. I just can't shake it today. WTF
Kate: You are entitled!! It's hard to keep it together every day.
AMEN to THAT!
It is hard to keep it together everyday damn it. As hard as I try, sometimes I really have a off day, and that is OK! Ain't nobody perfect up in here.
Kate forced me to put in my work out and I felt like a million bucks afterwards like I always do. I got in my run- it was slow but cleansing. Running really is free therapy. We did a bunch of old R.I.P.P.E.D. songs that felt, dare I say, easy for me. I remember my first R.I.P.P.E.D. class. I had about 50 extra pounds on my back and all that jumping, plyo, lunges, kickboxing, and feeling self conscience made me run for the door and want to never return. I was quite literally seeing spots and feeling faint the work out was so hard. It's hard for me to wrap my brain around just how far I've come sometimes. Moral of that story? Stick it out, persevere, do something fabulous for yourself, because you will never once regret it!
